1 Year ActiveRain Anniversary- It is Woo Hoo Good! And Here's to the Boot!

1 Year ActiveRain Anniversary- It is Woo Hoo Good! And Here's to the Boot!  It all began here because I fractured two toes, was put in a boot to heal, and my normal crazy life style was put somewhat on hold.  What was i to do with this free time?  Aah, maybe I should venture into ActiveRain that real estate network I had heard alot about for years...worth a try I said.

And so it began...floundering around here, yes and the servers were wretched then, reaching out to realtors in other states or they would reach out to me, taking ARU courses (it was Brad & Steven who made it happen for me) to get that 'aha' moment (almost like Oprah's!) about what I was not doing right or well.  Being convinced that a Rainmaker account was the way to go and writing that first blog about short sales....some things just don't change in a year!

message in a bottle in North Kingstown RI



It has been life changing being here on ActiveRain and learning so much more about the blogging world, connections of friends and associates, SEO & Google juice, and people I would depend upon in a heartbeat.  Thank you to all who have blessed my life here with your infinite knowledge and who have helped me grow, I know, into a better Realtor and person for all my clients present and future.  I can't wait for Raincamp!

Who would have known that people would find me from blogging about neighborhoods or towns and from distant places ask me for assistance when they came to RI to rent and then buy.  I've made wonderful connections with some of these people I know will be long lasting...it is the 'je ne sais quoi'( i know there goes my french again- I don't know what)  that adds to one's life.

There is no doubt I love my profession and what I do every moment even when things are not right.  And ActiveRain just makes it all better sometimes.  Thank you all...for that 1 year ActiveRain Anniversary- It is Woo Hoo Good! And Here's to the Boot!

I am always so amazed at everyone's stories.  I have not been with Active Rain very long, not even two months yet, and am looking forward to a long relationship.  I have learned many things in this short time, and made one friend who lives not too far from me.  I am thankful for all of it. Congratulations on your one year anniversary.

Ginny!

I missed this post:(  Congratulations on the perserverence you have shown here at AR!  I guess that saying that "all things happen for a reason" is true:)   (hope your toes are better:)

I, for one, have enjoyed reading your posts and you being here has made me feel less lonely in Rhode Island, lol!   I expect you to be #1 in RI on AR very shortly and I am cheering you on:)

It's hard to miss a good Realtor, and I certainly consider you one.

happy anniversaryGinny,

Happy first anniversary with AR.

221535 points in one year is astonishing and REMARKABLE. You will soon be surpassing Karen Hurst and becoming RI's #1 Realtor blogger on AR.

And all this because of a toe injury LOL
